Dufferin Peel Secondary Unit was happy to once again support Operation Christmas Cheer through the donations from the Breakfast with Santa event.

We matched the donations and were able to present a cheque in the amount of $1540 to Cassandra Robinson, founder of Operation Christmas Cheer. We hope this donation helps the families of striking workers over the holidays.

Davis Campus Strike

IMG_0017

DPSU President Peter MacDonald and DPSU Teacher Welfare Officer John Hynan joined striking OPSEU members on their picket at the Davis Campus of Sheridan College. OPSEU College Instructors have been on strike since Oct. 14. DPSU donated $2,200 to OPSEU Local 244 to support their goal to achieve a fair and just Collective Agreement.One of the main bargaining goals for OPSEU is to increase the number of permanent faculty members. Currently, the majority of its members live from sessional contract to sessional contract. It is precarious work. Stay strong, brothers and sisters! DPSU will continue to support you!
